Oh Memebox, you are just too much fun. I love that you can buy as few (or as many - in my case) as you'd like, you're not limited to only one per month (which I guess is both good and bad - especially on my bank account). I ordered this one on September 11th, and it shipped on October 28th, arriving about a week and a half later.
This Memebox was the Tonymoly box - the first brand specific box I've purchased. This one caught my eye based on the adorable packaging Tonymoly products are known for, and it didn't disappoint!
Cost: $32 + $6.99 shipping (but of course I used a promo code which almost covered the cost of shipping)
First look - everything was well protected!
The information card included is so great! I wouldn't know what most of this stuff was without this card...
Panda's Dream White Magic Cream
"A skin brightening and perfecting cream that locks in moisture and brightens dull complexions. This super nourishing cream will bring vitality back to skin while evening out the skin tone. Skin will feel soft and smooth after each application without the greasiness. The adorable panda packaging and the light fruity scent is an added bonus!"
This is a really thick, white cream. I've only used it a few times (and always at night), but it seems to actually lighten my skin and provide lots of moisture. Plus it looks adorable on the shelf in my bathroom!
Apple Tox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream
"This is a multi-cream enriched with green apple extracts, AHA and papaya extracts and which works as a massaging, moisturizing and peeling cream all in one. Green apple extracts rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin C and pectin acid are effective agents as skin exfoliators and revitalizers."
I haven't tried this yet, but it looks great sitting on the shelf in my bathroom!
Egg Pore Shiny Skin Soap
Value: $9 for 2
"A 5 in 1 Egg Soap that works to deliver moisture, nutrition, deep cleansing effect, sebum control and pore care. It's made from fertile eggs soaked in vinegar for 1-2 weeks, a process that maximizes the level of calcium, protein, vitamin, amino acid and various minerals found in eggs"
This sounds disgusting, but upon googling this I don't think it's the actual fertilized egg at all. From my google searches, this is just soap made of of egg whites. I also thought this was an all-over body soap, but it turns out it's just for your face. According to a lot of the reviews I've found, the white soap is for the morning, but you need to leave it on for 15 minutes (who has that much time to wash your face in the morning?!) and the brown one is for night-time cleansing. The first week or so of using this will cause your face to break out like crazy, as it is pulling all of the impurities out of your pores (which is the biggest reason why I won't be using these - I'm lucky to have very few breakouts). Overall, the online reviews for this product are favourable, but I think it might be a little too strong for my dry/sensitive skin.
Delight Tint Crayon Neon
"Sweet and vivid under the daylight, Tonymoly's Delight Tint Crayon Neon goes wild under UV lights with its electric neon colours! It melts onto lips like a lip balm with a long-lasting radiance and is easy to use with its auto-type packaging."
I really like this colour, and it does glide on super smooth.
Mini Peach Lip Balm
"This adorable mini-sized lip balm comes in the size of a large coin and is scented with a lovely fruity fragrance that lingers on your lips long after application. Its peach and shea butter formula is also extremely nourishing and leaves lips moist and supple."
This definitely smelled like peach, there was no doubt about that. I've realized I'm not a huge fan of lip balms that I need to stick my finger into. It did feel nice on my lips though! The packaging is clearly meant to look like a peach, but it kind of looks like something else...
Back Gel Eye Liner Long Brush in Brown
"A best-selling gel liner that comes with a brush of its own and boosts its super water-proof and long-lasting formula. The eyeliner glides on smoothly and precisely, then quickly dries down to a long-wearing, water-resistant finish"
I enjoy the brush of this, and I tend to only wear gel liners, so it's great to now have a brown one in my collection.
Luminous Goddess Aura Beam
"Tonymoly's Luminous Goddess Aura Beam is a luminous gel type cream that adds supple, healthy glow to the skin, and minimizes the look of skin imperfections. Mixed with your favourite BB cream or used alone, this miracle product will help you achieve that infamous gorgeous Korean skin glow"
I've wanted to use this, but I can't seem to get any product out of the bottle....
This box had a total of 7 products with a combined value of $73. It wasn't the best value Memebox I've ever received, but there were enough products I like to make it worthwhile.
You can actually buy a few Tonymoly products online from Urban Outfitters, including a few of the products I actually received in this box.
